You also must have heard that SWTOR became the fastest AAA MMO that went from a sub-based model to a FTP model right?

Im sure you read the many articles that said the SWTOR team went through TWO rounds of layoffs due to the immense failure of SWTOR right?

You would also logically conclude that SWTOR would have been shutdown had it not been the fact that EA had already spent millions upon millions of dollars on an "MMO with an IP that can NOT fail" right? Basically SWTOR cost EA way too much money for it to fail and be shutdown. Their fix? Hurry into FTP and create a cash-shop where they can recoup some of that money they lost and to give confidence to their shareholders after EA's stock plummeted due to SWTOR's failure. This why so many people lost their jobs. To shareholders and to EA, SWTOR is NOT just a game, it is a business (rightfully so).

But im sure you knew all that already.
If Star Wars is an IP that can't fail then how come SWG failed harder then SWTOR?

also you would be incorect about SWTOR being the fastest AAA MMO to F2P that is still held by DCUO.

Because SWG decided to become what it ain't. SWTOR decided to stick with what it is(at least so far).

yeah but remember they just launched last year. This is a year later. Not even WoW goes to conventions. Actually i'm not so sure there will be a bunch of new MMOs there.

Elder Scrolls might other then that I don't know of what else will be there. Btw you are basing what MMO you are playing on weather or not they will be at a convention?

PAX east is THE biggest gaming convention on the east coast...not having a presence there seems foolhardy...or maybe they are giving up after Makeb...

it's the ONLY gaming convention on the east coast.

It's also pretty small compared to Pax Prime, E3, Comic Con and others. Makeb is coming out in the next month why waste money and resources going to a smaller convenion when the big on is still E3 and Pax Prime??

You honestly beleive they are going to spend millions of dollars on Makeb and then just give up??? What world do you live in?

Like I said MOST MMOS DON"T EVEN GO TO CONVENTIONS AFTER LAUNCH.

WoW only goes to Blizzcon and they only do Blizzcon when they have something new to announce. They didn't even hold a blizzcon last year.

But please tell me what MMOs are going to be at Pax East?

Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
